The Regulatory Profession
The regulatory profession plays a vital role in making safe and effective healthcare products available worldwide. Regulatory professionals play integral roles through the healthcare product lifecycle—at every stage of the development, distribution, marketing and post market surveillance of drugs, medical devices, biotechnology products and other medical treatments. Increasingly, they are also engaged in critical business functions, including organizational and corporate strategy, health technology assessment and comparative effectiveness research, legal issues and government affairs.
